Welcome to the official Sanctuary First app. 

Be encouraged on a daily basis by prayers, scripture readings and regular sermons and videos that appear in this app. 

Sanctuary First is written for and by Christians who want to be passionate about daily worship but we know how easy it is to lose heart and fall by the wayside. We at Sanctuary First just want to be honest as we grow in our faith. We don’t want to be ‘over the top Christians’ who fall off the edge, instead we want to recognise that we won’t always get it right but if we journey as a group of companions with Jesus at the centre he will save us from ourselves.

It is our vision that this will be a creative tool inspiring collaborative thinking across the world allowing us to engage with the world church in worship helping us to become more passionate about the issues of peace and justice and reconciliation as we seek to live out the teaching and practice of Jesus.

Sanctuary First was conceived and created out of the ministry of St Andrew’s Church of Scotland, Bo’ness

Brilliant resource!

Just loving this already - videos/labyrinth/meditations/prayers/testimonies and loads of themed ideas as well as daily prayer/readings. Brilliant resource to use personally and for sharing with others - looking forward to exploring further.

Top notch

All the stuff you would want - and none of the stuff you don't.

This thing works fast, the navigation is top notch.
